February might be going okay
Wednesday, February 07, 2018      2 comments

With a rough start to the new year I think I might be looking at a modicum of success for this subsequent month. A colleague is doing the Whole 30 program in February to try and combat the pain and inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis. Her commi... Read more
What happened to January!
Friday, February 02, 2018      0 comments

I had such high hopes for a good new year start...but here we are in February and while the scale inched down a wee bit before the holidays it's inched back up. Trying to keep up my spirits in a world where hate reigns supreme isn't easy - but I... Read more
A Week In
Sunday, January 07, 2018      1 comments

It's a week in and not much progress to report. The scale was kinder to me this week than it should have been, but I'm not complaining. I go back to work next week, which is of course a good thing/bad thing. I've loved the unstructured tim... Read more
Welcome to 2018
Monday, January 01, 2018      0 comments

Well, here it is the first day of the new year. I imagine there have been at least 30-35 different New Years Days that I've had the same resolution...lose weight, eat better, get healthier. And I know I'm joined by millions in this resolve... Read more

Okay, just changed my intro to my Sparkpage, and didn't realize I'd used the same phrase about pulling up those big-girl pants! Well, it was a good sentiment then and it's still a good sentiment. The eight months between this entry and the ... Read more
Time to pull up the big girl pants and move on
Sunday, April 09, 2017      5 comments

Okay, the title pretty much sums things up...time to pull up the big girl pants and move on. Although I'm usually a positive person, the past month has been more than a bit of a challenge. But when I step back and look at the big picture, I real... Read more
Another Year Gone by the Wayside
Sunday, February 26, 2017      4 comments

It's been a year. That pretty much sums things up. A number of physical challenges (four surgeries and a nasty case of shingles) have put me off my game but hopefully I'm past the worst of it and I'll be moving forward. Still struggling wi... Read more
Feels better this time
Monday, January 04, 2016      5 comments

Although the scale might not back me up, this Biggest Loser round really is better than the last. I'm more aware of what I'm doing this time...which doesn't mean I'm doing things the right way, just with more awareness. Hunger or boredom. ... Read more
And I thought a 2 month hiatus was long!
Thursday, November 26, 2015      5 comments

Hard to believe that FOUR months have passed since the last entry. But the fact that I've neglected SP for this long is reflected in the scale. Sigh. So, we're here again. Maybe not starting over but feeling that way. I've... Read more
And there goes May and June
Sunday, July 26, 2015      3 comments

Well, that last blog entry doesn't seem so surprising once I see the elapsed time between entries this time. Since then spring semester ended, I taught my summer class, discovered the foot injury is a stress fracture and have been dragging ... Read more
Well what happened to March?
Sunday, April 19, 2015      3 comments

How ironic that the last blog entry started with my disbelief that it had been so long since my last post - and here we are again. But this time I let the whole month of March go by the wayside. How the heck did that happen? It's been serio... Read more
Welcome to February!

Really? How is it possible that we're into February and I've not blogged since January 1st. Wow. Another wowo in looking back to realize how many days have passed and I'm still kinda stuck back in the day. Good intentions but fai... Read more
A fresh new start
Thursday, January 01, 2015      7 comments

Yup, here it is New Year's Day. By the way - happy New Year! I've actually been looking forward to turning over the date on the calendar and using this as incentive for turning over that new leaf. I've always kind of wished that SP had a ... Read more
The best laid plans of mice and men...
Sunday, December 28, 2014      3 comments

Ah yes, best laid plans are basically aspirations that have yet to die. So sad to say that my aspirtions are currently on life support, but redemption might still be possible. Like many I suffered greatly from that most devious affliction ... Read more
Shopping and crafts today
Sunday, December 07, 2014      4 comments

Doing my best to be productive today. Wrote out my menus for the week then did the grocery shopping for most of the week. Despite being as efficient as I could be that managed to take most of the morning. The rest was spent making pinwheels. My ... Read more
